Looking for great dinner near PHX airport
I asked this question but it is buried in another thread, and I thought that maybe I would get some replies if I made a separate thread.
I will be dropping someone off at PDX at 7 pm on a Sunday night. We would like to get dinner beforehand. Can anyone recommend a good place that will be open on a Sunday evening at around 5:30 pm (but with no wait and not too busy)?
Mighty fine bar-b-que at Bill Johnson's Big Apple on Van Buren. Right beside the Airport and real easy to get into on a Sunday Evening.
I'm not sure what kind of dining experience you're looking for or what direction you will be coming from, but I'll throw out a few different options that are open on Sundays and are within 10-15 minutes of the airport.
al Hana (inside Baiz Market): simple, well prepared Middle Eastern dishes in a very casual setting. no alcohol
Nobuo at Teeter House: high quality Japanese with modern and Western touches. beer, wine, and cocktails.
Durant's: old school upscale steak house. an Old Phoenix landmark. beer, wine, and cocktails.
Cafe Lalibela: very good Ethiopian in a casual space. beer and wine.
If you choose Lalibela, Durant's, or Nobuo, you might want to call ahead to reserve a table and have the booker make a note that you need to be out the door by 6:45. Pacing at al Hana will be determined largely by what dishes you order and how quickly you can eat them.
